January 15, 2015, 1:30 p.m. — The Action of Minimal Sculpture, or Making the Object an Action
How can an object express an action? What makes a sculpture "successful?" In the mid-1960s, Richard Serra was experimenting with found industrial materials and exploring the physical properties of sculpture. Learn about Serra’s working process and experiment with "expressing action" in three-dimensional art.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
